@susie australia & Allistamps123:
You're most welcome! I know most artists will tell you it's hard to come up with a good beginners' list because the right combinations will depend on what you want to color. Someone who wants to color flowers won't need the same markers as someone coloring people. So, a comprehensive list that takes everything into account is impossible.

At the same time, I think people - particularly those who are new at coloring - need something to start with. So, I built a starter palette. I'm really happy that it's helping out.

@Jennifer:
Try this paper - https://www.simonsaysstamp.com/produ...1?currency=USD
(I linked to Simon Says Stamp, but lots of other stores carry it. I usually order mine though Amazon when it's in stock for Prime).

It's only 5$ for 30 sheets and it's sized for A2 so you could have it as an entire card front. It's a thin paper, but it gives smooth blending and it's very easy to fussy-cut with. If you like how it works and blends, you can invest in a thicker/bigger pack like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Copic-Marker-.../dp/B0044JPR7E
I bought the 125 pack 2 years ago and I still haven't finished it -- and I'm on a design team for a company that does digis, so I do a lot of printing and coloring.
